The alumnae association’s Los Angeles chapter will recognize Martin at its annual Sisters’ Awards Brunch on Sunday, March 8, 2020, at the Skirball Cultural Center in LA. Joining Martin are fellow honorees Jacquelyn Dupont-Walker, president of Ward Economic Development Corporation, and Deborah Prothrow-Stith, M.D., dean of the College of Medicine at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science.
Martin has earned 10 NAACP Image Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role as Diane Johnson on ABC’s “Black-ish.” Additionally, Martin’s company, Genius Productions, signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures in February 2019. At 15 years old, she also holds the distinction of being Hollywood’s youngest executive producer for the 2019 film Little, in which she also had a starring role.
The Sisters’ Awards Brunch has raised more than $530,000 in scholarship funds for incoming Spelman freshmen from Los Angeles.
